    Getting there.

    Situated on the waterfront, the hotel is a quiet getaway off the hustle and bustle of the city. Yet it is only minutes from the Victoria and Alfred Quay and the city center. The Cape Town international airport is but 17km away, which means that it will take you just a quarter of hour to get to and from the airport.

    Getting around.

    There is a free private parking on-site, an airport shuttle is also provided. An additional touch is a free taxi with private chauffeur within 15 km radius of the Hotel (pre-booking is required). There is also a bicycle rental. The guests can also book an open top bus tour.

      The service was exceptional and of the highest standard - I will use their facilities again and again without question.

      I liked the fact tht there was a car avaiable to us within 20 km of the hotel to take us to different locations. You had to book in advance but it was generally available.

      I did not like the location. It was off the beaten track and while it was at the waterfront, you had several blocks to walk to reach any resstaurants. It was not safe at night to walk to the restaurants outside of the hotel.

    • Older travelers
      9.4

      Cape Grace must be one of the best hotels in the world. Friendly helpful staff, warm welcome luxurios bedroom. As returners we were upgraded to a view of Table Mountain & marina. Suberb location with the amenities of the Waterfront a stroll away. Sadly this does not come at a bargain price but worth every rand!

      For a larger hotel, the hotel has an intimate feeling and great and attentive staff. There is a very personal feeling provided by all concerned.

    • Older travelers

      This was a short return visit to Cape Grace before we travelled on. We know luxury and standards are high, but not too formal.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      It's the second time we stay at the hotel and it is surely one of the best hotels in the world. The friendliness of the staff is outstanding

      We sometimes found that the service was a bit slow (breakfast) considering the high expectations we have.
